Succinctly put - Sing With Me If It's Just For Today... — LiveJournal
If I should fall behind, Guyster, wait for me.
Succinctly put
A friend, whose lover commited suicide ten years ago, said to me yesteday,

"Don't cry for what you've lost,
Smile because you had it."

Left brain totally gets it. Right brain loves my friend for telling it to me.

In such a profoundly confusing way, I understand I am the luckiest man on earth.

Current Mood: contemplative contemplative
Current Music: Rain - Madonna

This reminds me much of a quote a friend of mine said to me recently, whch as soon as i read this, i frantically went to search for the paper I wrote it on, which i cannot find. So alas, this response is null and void, but I wanted to say thanks. I hope you don't mind, a friend of mine had this journal listed as their friend, so i started reading and enjoy the insight.

Thank you for your response even though you had no quote to share. It's the thought and all that, right? I looked through your journal and was astonished at your gift of poetry and how deeply it affected me. I took the liberty of adding you to my friends list. I am always inspired by those who have better writing skills than I as it helps raise my personal bar.

I am curious - perhaps if I read more of your journal I would know - what makes your writing so mournful. I have been, at times, slapped as well for being too melancholy in my posts. I laugh at that notion.

mournful and yet so full of life

You might catch a glimpse reading more of my journal into what makes my writing what it is. But in reality, it is so shielded from the world that you would have to look deeper. It comes from a life with sheltered love, wrong choices at young ages, and not being allowed to say good-bye to the people closest to me when they left this place. My writing is the side of me I hide and try not to show openly. hence why it is here, not out somewhere for all to see...
Thank you and I too have added you. Your journal gives me a sense of something, that I have not seen in another in quite sometime. I enjoy it.....

Re: mournful and yet so full of life

Thank you for the virtual handshake or hug or something. I look forward to getting to know your journal better.
